Shuttered by the pandemic in March of 2020 and unable to present live performances, Hudson Valley's Bridge Street Theatre announces a four-month dance residency program utilizing the theater's resources to nourish performing artists and develop new works during the current health crisis. Residency artists will have exclusive access to the 12,000 sq foot refurbished industrial building in the village of Catskill, NY. Facilities include an 84-seat black box theater, a flexible cabaret performance space, a large-scale gallery, and on-site artist housing. The residency will provide a safe harbor for dancemakers, supporting them with the precious resource of stage time, access to production equipment, housing, and stipends to support their creative process.
At the end of each two-week residency a video sample of the work-in-process will be available on Bridge Street Theatre's web site (BridgeStreetTheatre.org), Facebook page, and YouTube channel.
